10-3-30 Challenge Day 4

The whole idea of me keeping track here is so I actually do the challenge, and not bow out of it.  Saying that I wasn't wanting to do it this morning.  However knowing I would have to write that here if I didn't do it, made me go downstairs and do it.  I know in my heart of hearts this is doing me good, I am just not a fan of walking 30 minutes on a treadmill.  

So went downstairs, shouted at Google to put on Fat's Domino and off I went.

The photo above is taken before I press the stop button.  The one below is when I have pressed the stop button, that is why the calorie count is different.
As you see by the photos, I actually walked for 32.46 minutes, I wanted to listen to a song.

I burned more calories though, as this time I did 16 minutes at incline 10, then dropped it down gradually and the lowest I got was incline 6.  So obviously the higher the incline the more calories burned, I guess?

My numbers for today were:

1.64 miles walked
32.46 minutes on the treadmill @ 3 miles per hour
Incline 10 for 16 minutes, dropping down gradually to incline 6.

I managed to do another two walks, the morning one longer than the after supper one.  

My stats as per my Fitbit:

Steps walked: 13,665
Miles: 5.56
99 total minutes of exercise
Water drank 4 x 16 fluid ounces

I am struggling with the water intake.  It's cold and the last thing I want to do is drink water.  Still anything is better than nothing.  It was suggested that I add some sugar free flavouring to the water; that doesn't excite me either­čśĆ  I am still keeping my food and blood sugar diary.  I will share a page with you over the weekend.

How excellent! You are inspiring me to hop on our treadmill! .. or perhaps if my knees don't allow that .. the stationary bike.
